Draw and Pace Combination
The Draw and Pace Combination Heat Map offers insight into flat races you’d never think was possible.
This heat map shows the relative performance of runners, across several powerful metrics, for four different run styles across three different parts of the draw (low, middle and high).
The first stage of using this heat map is to identify the precise draw and pace combinations that bring about the best performances, and also the worst combinations that are likely to make life extremely difficult in some circumstances for those runners to get involved.
On top of that this heat map will allow you to figure out what draws might overcome a pace bias and what run styles might overcome a draw bias. As an example, when it’s an advantage to be drawn low you’ll often find that higher drawn front runners are best placed to overcome that draw bias, compared to higher drawn horses that are more patiently ridden.
